I had the honor of mentoring authors at the ShowMe Writers Masterclass Conference in October 2017 and am thrilled to be presenting two of my editing workshops back to back for their first MasterClass Mini next month. I’ll teach Exposition Exposed and Prioritizing Point of View — details follow.
Learn once and for all the difference between showing and telling so you can find and fix the flabby parts of your writing. In the first half of class, we’ll define terms, look at examples, and analyze what works and what doesn’t. In the second half, we’ll workshop a work in progress and make it lean & strong.
Prioritizing Point of View
Learn why perspective is everything. In the first half of class, we’ll discuss the different POVs—first, second, and third-person, unlimited and omniscient, and multiple—and how they govern storytelling. In the second half, we’ll critique and revise passages together.
